F1 » Horner: 'Awesome' Webber 'a big part' of RBR glory


To some extent F1's forgotten man in the wake of team-mate Sebastian Vettel's extraordinary title triumph in Abu Dhabi, Mark Webber has received warm praise from Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner

Has Horner been reading our post? All a bit patronising if you ask me. I 'spose the upside is if Vettel can't say anything nice about Mark atleast Horner did! Red Bull Vettel Racing, will be an interesting workplace next year!

It is just so interesting that Horner seems to keep trying to convince the world that Webber got equal treatment. 30 years from now, I bet he'll still be talking about it, trying to make it "true" by repetition. It is not a very intelligent approach by Horner. Whether Webber got equal treatment or not, we the public will never know, but Horner's constant comments on the subject only arouse suspicions, rather than allay them. The behavior of Webber and Vettel is another indication counter to Horner's assertions. If Horner would just stop mentioning "equality", maybe in 30 years or so we'd forget what a disingenuous guy he appears to have been.

In the end, I think it came down to the turn at Korea where Mark had no one to blame but himself. Had he finished in the points, it would have forced Red Bull's hand to support him more. To me it seemed that Mark was racing not to lose the last few races instead of to win when he barged Vettel in Silverstone to take the win. Mark's best chance to win the championship now (assuming he stays with Red Bull)is if the Red Bulls are not dominant as he appears to be a better racer than Vettel and Vettel is the best qualifier in the game today. Webber's poor starts the last few races of the season (I can't remeber which race but there was one where he was like a tortise off the start) ultimately killed him. What no one is talking about is how Lewis gave the championship away, prior to Monza, he had a major lead!

Yes, Mark lost valuable points in that race, but all the contenders have done that this year, even Alonso. I don't think it would have forced Red Bull's hand at all. He was already ahead of Vettel and you can't blame lack of team support for his poor qualifying or his position in the race. Maybe his strategy would have been different if he didn't need to beat Alonso on the track in Abu Dhabi but really the team gave him every opportunity to go out there and win it, and when it came to the crunch he just couldn't put any pressure on Alonso.
